Big Box, Little Box LapBook

This was Misha's third attempt at lapbooking.

I came across the video, reader & lapbooking ebook from CurrClick & thought it might be of great assistance in recovering his self badly damaged self confidence whilst learning about potential.

He thoroughly enjoyed the video clip & read the reader twice. Finally he cut out the boxes for the popsicle sticks & then he was reading the story as a puppet show. He suddenly realized he could read and with that came a boost to his in self confidence.
